Ive tried original and flash downloads, a new window opens and the video just plays with no other options to save.
Any ideas ?

Many thanks.
That happened to me too. I tried again a day or two later and it worked. There might just be a delay from when you sign up until you can download.

Gyro/servo setup
(GY401/3400G) Part 1 , Part 2

BASIC FLIGHT THEORY NEW
HOVER, APPROCHES AND DECELERATIONS , Coordinated Turns, Forward Flight
........more to come tapeing/editing




TAIL SETUP

Thank you very much for the training vids on tail build. Did you switch cameras or video mode between vid 1 and 2,3. 2 and 3 seemed that your hands and some of the tail assembly intricacies blurred on screen as you moved.

Ok, I feel very dumb, but how do you download those vids? If I right click and choosed save target as, it only downloads the links. Am I missing something. Also, I have stock servos, and it appears you have a different gyro and servos. I need to know what they are and where to get them. The vids are great, but I want to save them to my hard drive in case I can't get on the net.

Thank you all!

Thanks for the video's. Being absolutely new to rc heli's and having a blade 400 for my first one is a challenge for me. your video's helped alot with finding the problem of why it wanted to tip over before midstick was reached (Blade pitch was way off).

Thanks for the effort.

Thumbs up

Excellent videos, well presented, terrific content. Which is what I'd expect of a Crew Chief! (My dad was an RAF Chief Tech/Crew Chief on EE-Lightnings/Vulcan B1/C130)

If... or, rather, when my still-to-be-bought Blade 400 and the planet Earth try to occupy the exact same piece of space, I will be confident I will be able to repair the heli.

Default Blade-400

I need some help with my Blade-400.
I installed my Airtronics SD-10G radio in my Blade-400 after my DX-6 broke and now I can't get my new radio on line.
When I'm at 50% and give fwd stick the heli jumps into the air and I have no idea on what to do. I'm lost and almost out of parts.
I'm looking for ideas on swash plate setting .

You probably need to do a complete head setup to get everything level at low - mid - high stick. You also probably have to set your throttle and pitch curves to tame it down a bit.

Sokals videos will show you how to set up the head. You'll just need to substitute the appropriate screens on your radio to what he's using.

That radio is a problem - it's completely different from the standard.
